Adairsville pitcher Victoria O’Neal struck out eleven and tossed a complete-game three hitter Tuesday night as the Lady Tigers blanked visiting Murray County in a Region 6-AAA contest, 7-0.
O’Neal (photo) also went 4-for-4 at the plate and drove in a run, but it was Sadye Johnson’s 4-for-4 performance that included a pair of home runs, a double, and three RBI that highlighted the attack.
Chloe Souders (RBI) and Alyssa Jarrett had the other Adairsville base hits. Megan Gregory and Olivia Talarico both drove in a run.
The Lady Tigers (5-6, 2-1) travel to Haralson County Thursday for a 5:30 p.m. start.
